First Line Chemistry

Sometimes the first line is all it takes to suck me into a book. Sometimes the first line of a book is so fabulous that I know the book will be unputdownable. First Line Chemistry is a feature created to showcase some wonderful first lines. 

Warm sun and robin's-egg skies were inappropriate conditions for sending one's uncle to a lunatic asylum. - The Dark Unwinding by Sharon Cameron (Uncorrected proof)

I hadn't killed anyone all winter, and I have to say I felt pretty good about that. - Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown (Uncorrected proof)

This is the way the world ends - not with a bang or a whimper, but with zombies breaking down the back door. - Hollowland by Amanda Hocking

Okay, so I realize all of these first lines are a little morbid, but they really jump out at me and make me want to read the novel they belong to. 

Which first line do you have the most chemistry with?
